    20 years of playing D&D

    I can't remember exactly when I started playing, but I know it was early summer 1993. So sometime during the end of June or beginning of July. That makes it 20 years now since I started playing D&D. I was working as a councilor at the local scout camp, and got introduced to the game. The guy...

    D&D 2E Thinking of doing up some 2e house rules.

    I'm starting to feel the whole grognard pull towards the classic versions of the game. I felt a lot of frustration last time I tried running a 3e game. I didn't have the usual problems with the game a lot of people do, namely the math. My biggest problem was the whole 3.0/3.5 split. My 3e...

    Looking for Underdark hex mapping ideas and stuff

    I'm looking for some ideas on mapping out my campaign world Underdark on a hex grid. The scales involved would be 1 hex = 1/5/25 miles. This is the same as the scale involved for the surface maps, but I'm not going to scale up to the 125 and 625 mile maps, since that's too big for Underdark...

    Star Wars Crawl Creator

    I found this fun little feature over on the official Star Wars site: StarWars.com | Star Wars Crawl Creator It lets you create your own Star Wars title crawl. I was going to post it over in the Media Lounge, but then I thought it would be actually pretty useful for the people around here who...

    Looking for Piratey Music, Arrr!

    I'm looking for some music that would sound good for a pirate campaign. Stuff for battles, pillaging, sailing, encountering ghost ships, making scurvy landlubbers walk the plank, digging up treasure, fighting krakens, battling ninjas, etc. Since this is for my PbP game, I would prefer YouTube...

    Parrot familiars?

    I'm going to add parrots to the familiar list for my pirate campaign. Stats will just reskin the hawk, but I can't figure out a good bonus for a parrot familiar. I'm already planning to give it the ability to speak, like a raven (because parrots have that whole mimicry thing going on) but I...

    [D&D 3.5] Pirates of the Broken Sea - OOC [recruiting open]

    All right, I'm going to officially kick off a new campaign here. I'm looking for up to about 8 players. As the title says, it's 3.5. However, my source for 3.5 is pretty much the SRD itself, my books are all 3.0. Also, I haven't DMed in something like 6 years now, so there might be some...

    I'm thinking of starting a game.

    It's been a while since I've DMed a game, and I'm kind of itching to get behind the screen again. Well, metaphorically speaking of course. Rules will be 3.5. It's the system I'm most familiar with and comfortable running. The only other rule set that I'd be solid with using is 2e, and I'd...

    The "Torment a Historian" movie playlist thread

    Just to get some life in here, let's post a list of movies that are supposed to be historical, but get so much wrong a historian would have a stroke. No fantasy or anything set in the real world that requires A Wizard Did It, these should all be movies that are supposed to take place sometime...
